Doctor looked dejected and dismayed, drinking alone in a restaurant. Then, the patient came in, sat beside her.
P: (said in a warm, deep voice) Oh, doctor, it’s glad to see you here. I went to the clinic to see you but the nurse told me you had days off. (She stared at Daisy and asked) Why are you drinking in broad daylight? Is there anything bothering you?
D: Oh, Penny, I’m fine. (She sighed deeply and covered her face with her hands.)It is just my dog. She disappeared.
P: Oh, I am sorry to hear that. When did you find her disappear?
D: It was at last Friday night. I have been looking for her these days.
P: Have you ever been to the central park to find her?
D: Central park? No, the park is too big. It is impossible by my own.
P (said brightly): Ha. It’s alright. I can help you.
D: Wow, it is just so kind of you. Thank you!
P: How about seeing you in front of the fountain at 19:20?
D: OK, see you then.
Doctor and the patient were in the central park. Quiet as the park was, nobody was there except the two.
D: Oh, Penny, I am sorry for bothering you at the moment.
P (managing to sound warm): It’s all right. You have helped me a lot. By the way, she is such a lovely dog. No one expects her to be hurt. Come on.
It was so dark. Daisy lost her bearing.
P (shouted): Daisy! Come here! I found her!
D (rushed to Penny): Oh, wait a minute. No. It cannot be my dog. I mean，they look alike, but I am sure that she is not my dog.
